During the battle over whether Kevin McCarthy would be Speaker of the House, Rep. Lauren Boebert was one of the MAGA Republicans standing like a stone wall alongside Rep. Matt Gaetz in insisting that Rep. McCarthy would only become the Speaker of the House if he negotiated in good faith and made important concessions.
Now she’s learning her post-confirmation battle fate and, it turns out, things couldn’t be going better for Boebert: despite having fought against now-Speaker of the House McCarthy during the confirmation fight, she’s been placed on the highly important and influential House Oversight Committee.
On that committee, she’ll be able to work alongside Rep. James Comer, the chair of it, in taking the fight to the Biden Administration by peeking behind the curtain of the Biden Family, the DOJ, the U Penn/Biden documents scandal, and other scandals that have engulfed the current administration. Newsweek reported Tuesday night on Rep. Boebert’s appointment to the committee, saying:
Colorado congresswoman Lauren Boebert has earned a seat on one of the most coveted committees in the new Republican-led Congress despite her lack of support for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy during his rocky rise to the top post in the U.S. House.
On Tuesday, Boebert announced she had been appointed to the influential House Oversight Committee by members of the McCarthy-led House Steering Committee.
The appointment gives the outspoken Colorado Republican outsized influence on looming investigations into three-letter agencies like the CIA and FBI that McCarthy—whom Boebert vocally opposed for the speaker post—had hinted at in the lead-up to Republicans taking the majority this past November.
Rep. Boebert announced her new committee assignment in a tweet, saying “I’m honored to be joining the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability. Chairman @RepJamesComer, let’s get to work!”
Predictably, Boebert’s tweet blew up on Twitter, with her supporters cheering the move and rabid leftists freaking out over Boebert’s appointment to the committee.
On the negative side of things, people said some very nasty things, such as:
“Great! When will you be turning yourself in?”
“Following Republican tradition the GOP is putting the biggest crooks in charge of oversight.”
“Got your Fisher-Price Congresswoman Playset ready?”
“You’re overseeing accountability, how did you managed that one? Oh that’s right, you did claim you were ‘strongest on your knees.”’
“Lol what a joke committee of what nonsense is all You guys are guilty of so many things and you think you got away with it but you haven’t neither has Kevin he has to pay a price too and it’s going to be heavy.”
“2 years of b!itching and getting absolutely nothing done while simultaneously tweeting non-stop.”
On the opposite side of things, Rep. Boebert’s supporters said things like:
“Show ‘em how it’s done!”
“YES LORD!!!!!!!! This woman here has more balls than most men. Oh I would not want to be on the wrong side of THAT panel!”
“You rock Lady!!!”
“Congratulations you deserve it”
“We are waiting to see the results. Get everyone on the Committee to work!”
